Learning and networking
for sustainable development in the Alps
The Alpine School & Our Alps network
May, 14th-15th, 2019 - Morbegno, Italy
Learn about two main outputs of the YOUrALPs project, the Alpine School Model and the OurAlps Network, at an international conference !
Are you a professional in education, mountain education or mountain activities in the Alps? Are you a policymaker? Do you work for an association, a public authority, a protected area or a network? Are you a young person passionate about the Alps?
During the Alpine School Model presentation, the experiences of schools and informal organizations who tested the model during the project will be highlighted. A round table will also be held to discuss with international and national policymakers about Alpine education and to the possibility of assuring the model's sustainability in the future. During the round table dedicated to OurAlps, we will discuss together the importance of an international network of mountain education in the Alps, in relation to international strategies aimed at Youth.
On day 2 of the conference, workshops in small groups will allow an operational exchange on targeted themes for mountain education and the OurAlps network.
The conference is organised in the frame of the INTERREG Alpine Space Project YOUrALPS
